Mr. RHEAUME (Translation):

I have

never looked upon my constituents as idiots, the proof that they are intelligent is that they voted against your program and put no faith in your promises.

Order. If the hon. member wishes to address the house he may do so, in turn. The hon. member now speaking is trying to be heard.

Mr. GOBEIL (Translation):

All hon. members will recall that on a previous occasion, the hon. member for St. Johns-Iberville stated, when the militia estimates were discussed in the house, that the military school in St. Johns was a disgrace to his county, military men did not behave as respectable persons and were lazy people.

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. POULIOT:

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a point of order. The hon. member is speaking about the soldiers at St. Johns, and I do not know what connection such reference could have to the marketing bill. His speech should be relevant to the matter before the house.

Mr. GOBEIL:

Speaking to the point of order may I say that I asked the hon. member if he were satisfied that I should read the letter, and he said yes. If he does not wish me to read it I shall not do so.

Mr. POULIOT:

It could be read only with unanimous consent, and I strongly object to it. If he has something else to say about the bill, let him say it.

Mr. GOBEIL:

I am (not at all anxious to read it, because I do not wish to be unfair.

(Translation): I do not wish to be harsh

towards my hon. friend, he has always been gracious with me, in the past and on various occasions, I do not wish to cause him unpleasantness; however, I know that these letters would interest greatly hon. members of this house. I shall read them on another occasion.

There is perhaps another reason why the hon. member for St. Johns-Iberville should be cautious in his statements, notwithstanding the fact that there are intelligent people in his county. At the next Liberal convention, called for the purpose of choosing a candidate for the dominion election in the counties of St. Johns-Iberville and Laprairie-Napierville, one of the two members who represent these counties will have to sit between two chairs; and, as the hon. member for Laprairie-Napierville is an excellent lawyer and a clever politician, I would advise my hon. friend for St. Johns-Iberville to be cautious and keep an eye on his constituents.

Mr. GOBEIL (Translation):

Is it not the provincial legislature or dominion parliament? That is what will happen in this case. Parliament will decide. Parliament will delegate *-no, I am wrong-it delegates its powers to no one, but it decrees that all violations to this act will constitute a criminal offence. The courts of this country, as in any other criminal cases, must decide whether the accused is guilty or not. I am not permitted, nor is any other member of this hon. house, to disrobe on Wellington street, in front of parliament, because the law forbids it.

Mr. GOBEIIL (Translation):

It is not proper because parliament has so decreed. I also wish to tell my hon. friends that it is also the reason why the Doukhobors, in the west, were imprisoned. It is likewise proper that the provincial government should decree that any one found in possession of a bottle of liquor which has not been purchased from the commission, will be prosecuted and fined or imprisoned. I wonder who, in this country, is authorized to decree that any violation of an act sanctioned by parliament constitutes a criminal offence; I also wonder whether the intelligent citizen of my province will take stock in such an argument.
